Alfalfas

Alfalfas

Alfalfa, recognized worldwide as the "Queen of Forages", is the backbone of many forage systems in the Midwest. Alfalfa is a nutrient dense forage that has good summer production. With its deeper root system, alfalfa will continue to grow and yield better than most other forages under less than ideal moisture situations.

Our alfalfas are hand selected by a group of dairy farmers, agronomists, and dairy nutritionists from hundreds of varieties in side-by-side trials, and evaluated in on-farm performance trials. They are selected to meet the needs of today's top alfalfa growers for forage quality, yield, and stand life.
